Fundraising Drive for Veterans
May 16-26, Student Council and the History Department along with some help from the Honor’s societies are sponsoring a fundraising drive for veterans in observance of Memorial Day. The charity organization is the GI GO Fund (http://www.gigofund.org/aboutus.html). We will raise funds through the history classes and each history teacher will compete for their students to win free Domino’s pizza and water for lunch on May 31. If we reach our goal of $1000 as a school the students will earn the ability to wear school appropriate PJ’s on May 31.
To complement the drive we had the students create a modern version of “Flander’s Field.” On May 20th, the students went out by grade level to place their paper poppies and create the field of poppies described in the famous poem. Also on May 20th, military veterans visited the students in their history class to talk about their experiences and to help put a face on the cause.
Our teachers have also decorated their doors and the hallways to commemorate the occasion. You can see a few examples of their excellent work above and below!
Mrs. Burton's door won first place!
IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING LUNCHES
End of Year Nurse Information
This is the “End of the Year” information from the school nurse.
All Medications must be picked up by parents before the last day of school. Medication is not kept for the next school year.
Students needing immunizations prior to 7th grade should have brought home information regarding this in April.

You may email records to the school nurse at Joan.Boswell@pisd.edu or sent via FAX to: 469-752-7001 OR 469-752-7019.
It has been a pleasure to provide healthcare to your child this school year. I hope your summer is safe and healthy.
